We stayed here for 2 nights because of the location and cost, by the end we felt it was over priced.
When we arrived the host was very friendly and helpful even helping with our luggage.
We had a family room (2 adults, 2 teenagers) which were two rooms with the door in between open, but it worked fine. The beds were not comfortable, the decor was dated (but to be fair that's never why we choose a hotel) but the icing on the cake was the bathroom. For a regular length shower-for Europe quick and to the point-the shower pan was at the point of running over and the toilet has some sort of special- as my husband and son called it- "poop muncher" that grinds up the waste so it can move thru the system. This apparatus was noisy-think blender- and the result was the bath smelling of septic.
The breakfast was a typical continental with juice, coffee, fruit and rolls and at €5 it was about the same as eating out. But we did this only one morning.
We arrived later in the day/evening and were able to find street parking in front of the hotel but otherwise there is a parking garage around the corner.
The hotel is in a good location and close to downtown but because of the pedestrian zone it is located in it was kind of confusing to get to, we used our map app on our phone to figure it out. The castle and marina were both with in easy walking distance and it's a pretty city. One thing to be aware of though we did get screamed at by a homeless lady because we didn't give her husband-stationed across the street- any money, it was one of those "walk quickly kids!" moments!
We won't be returning to this hotel.
